According to Manga Time Kirara magazine, manga "K-ON!" was announced to end next month. There have been two parallel serializations of K-ON!: the college arc on Kirara and the high school arc on Kirara Carat. It's unclear if the high school arc will be concluded as well.

That's a surprise, both new serializations haven't been going for very long if I'm right. I haven't even started reading them though. Does anyone knows how many chapters there have been in both 'new' serializations?

Kinda stupid, it should end either at girls' graduation, where anime ends, or at their graduation from university :|
Manga was worse than anime, so I won't really miss it.. Not couting my cute Ricchan and Yui :(
Now I'm looking forward to the movie, maybe third season after that? :3

Second season ended so well, why should a third season ruin that? Leave it as it is.

You both really want attention from K-on fans?

Kakifly would get exhausted and tired. He started making the story on his own pace. Fortunately Kyoto Animation made its Anime and brought the big bang boom. But unfortunately, the boom forced him to make more additional stories. He might not expect such circumstances.

He should have a rest for a while.

That reminds me:
I've been saving the series for future reading. How do the chapter numbers used online relate to there being two series? What am I saving?

Actually, I prefer K-On Manga than the anime. Maybe it's just because I read it before watched it. The anime is great but it's too..slow. 4 volumes of manga packed in 2 seasons with total 39 episodes (not including OVA and movie). Well yes, u can please ur eyes and ears in the anime, but the story..I like manga better.

So this news is really shocks me

Personally I think the author is just ending one of the mangas since working on two is difficult. Hopefully he just plans to merge the two.

Hoping for a third season!

Also lol @ haters. Japan loves moe so deal with it.

Heaven forbid people liking the K-ON! franchise.

Anyway, I assume Kakifly stops because it's too much to do two at a time. After all, he'd be working pretty much non-stop on the two mangas and I can easily see that getting very tedious eventually, not to mention stressful.

What I do hope is that this doesn't mean he'll repeat thew high school nits over and over again with newer characters. I think a lot of ans wouldn't forgive him for discarding the old characters they've grown used to and love. Let Azusa and co graduate, and either finish the story there, or continue with all of them in college. As much as Sumire and Nao have become interesting characters, I don't really care if we'll never hear from them again. I always saw them as replacements for the older cast, never really as full-fledged solo characters.

I'm thinking that might be what he's doing, freezing the college arc to let Azusa catch up.

I'll dedicate my viewing of the inevitable third season of the anime to both of you. Because loooooooool if you think K-ON! is truly going away.


This guy. I pray that it stays popular just so that these butt hurt people will stay butt hurt for the rest of their lives.

And I don't even particularly like K-On. LOOOL

Hopefully it's just as the others have said and he is only stopping one of the mangas to focus on one!

After all it's not like the mangas have been running all that long to begin with, and it would be ending just to soon!

Guess we'll have to see what happens with it.

The new manga has been pretty weak, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't want it to keep on continuing regardless. Kind of a stupid time to end it considering they're only halfway through the school year they started on.

The way I understood it, the High School story was not ending. I'm guessing it's going to continue until Azusa, Ui, and Jun graduate. And then the other 4 will show up for their last performance, and it will end with something like they are all going to the same college, and everything will be all happy again.

The original ended over a year ago. Is that what you're thinking of? This is about the two parallel manga that restarted it after that.
Oh, I didn't know about spin-offs. I thought there's only some 'various artists' thing.

Hopefully he continues Azusa's arc into the college arc. I personally am hoping for closure of the series by HTT performing at Budokan as has been the goal the entire time.

lol... How is manga ending a bad thing? Everything has to end sometime. The only time it's bad is if it's good but got canceled. What's truly irritating is manga that continue publishing past their expiration date.

Thank you. Those who are hating on K-ON! must be the same ones that think Code Geass was written by Shakespeare. *facepalm*
To those who don't like this very popular series, fine. Go about your tiny lifes hating on it.

Anyway, I assume Kakifly stops because it's too much to do two at a time. After all, he'd be working pretty much non-stop on the two mangas and I can easily see that getting very tedious eventually, not to mention stressful.

What I do hope is that this doesn't mean he'll repeat thew high school nits over and over again with newer characters.

As much as Sumire and Nao have become interesting characters, I don't really care if we'll never hear from them again. I always saw them as replacements for the older cast, never really as full-fledged solo characters.

I don't think Kakifly did either series justice. Like you said, he was split between the two. If one was given his full attention (like the college series) I think it would have been better. Plus being in college he had a whole blank palette to work from. IMO he just scratched the surface of what the girls could have done. We barely knew about their classes, with being in the club we could have seen them do more performances and even some live shows. Heck, even a chance of meeting guys. I highly doubt all-female colleges are as sterile as they make it out to be.
What if the Hokey Pokey is what it is all about?

It was going to be difficult to pull out new material at the rate the (High School arc) story was going since Azusa was in her final year of high-school and let's face it, once she graduated the story is dead in the water.

I don't even know how the college storyline managed to continue running.

It was only a matter of time.

That being said, I hope they'll eventually animate the rest of the manga material.

Well, I never said it was a bad thing.

It's just amazing to have so many big titles all end one after the other.

And YES, I agree that it's very irritating to see never ending manga.

K-ON! is a slice of life, there NEVER was a plot and there never will be a plot.

And quite frankly I came to love K-ON! because of it's laid back and fun way of storytelling.

There was never the pressure of making some overly complicated plot that eventually goes nowhere....*coughNEGIMAcough*
